Vestamid HTplus M1533

Vestamid HTplus M1533

Evonik Industries' Vestamid HTplus M1533 is a 30 percent glass fiber-reinforced compound that contains an internal lubricant. Reducing friction and minimizing abrasion, the polyphthalamide (PPA) amplifies the durability of gearbox components and reduces the energy consumed in the application. The material extends the repair intervals because gearbox components made from Vestamid HTplus M1533 are self-lubricating. The new compound can be used in gear wheels, friction bearings and ball bearing cages. Vestamid HTplus M1533 is available in two colors: natural and black.

Evonik is also adding 45 percent glass fiber-reinforced Vestamid HTplus M10345 to its PPA range. This thermally stable black compound is suitable for injection molding applications that must withstand extremely high temperatures. Besides high chemical resistance, molded parts made of Vestamid HTplus offer high dimensional stability and mechanical properties such as rigidity and tensile strength. Vestamid HTplus is suited for applications in which metals have traditionally been used. In addition to corrosion resistance, lower component weight.
